Top-notch Blanco Tequila pleasure
 
Jalisco, Mexico, is the birthplace of many fun things, including the Mariachi and Tequila. The latter was first concocted four centuries ago in the town of Tequila (duh), where today, a special distillery is located: Partida Tequila. It was established in 2001 by the brand wiz Gary Shansby, and the Master Magician there is the legendary Jose Valdez. He used to frolic among the agave fields as a kid, and when he grew up, he became a “technical tequilero”. He hooked up with the local agave farmers to secure the best plants, and he’s overseeing the entire process of Tequila-making, from bringing in agave to quality control. The distillery is named after a beloved local agave farmer, Enrique Partida, who inspired the process of creating Partida Tequila, which is considered to be one of the best Tequilas around.
 
Partida Tequila Blanco is a true and unadulterated agave Spirit that wonderfully reveals the essence of its plant. The agave is cultivated on Partida single estate in volcanic soil, letting it grow for a decade and develop more flavor. When harvested, it's slowly cooked for 20 hours and distilled twice in stainless steel stills (which means a brighter taste). Then, this silver Spirit spends six months in ex-Bourbon barrels, and what ends up in bottles is a unique and intriguing Blanco Tequila. The volcanic soil lends it a one-of-a-kind terroir flavor profile, which one could describe as "manly".

Tequila goes bad with time. Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidization and evaporation diminish the Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.
Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.

If the Tequila bottle label does not state that it’s manufactured from 100% Blue Agave, then, by default, that Tequila is a Mixto (manufactured from 51% Blue Agave).
